    Default Rapoport: Kubiak could be back as an OC next year

    Sources say that several potential head-coaching candidates view Kubiak as a viable possibility for an offensive coordinator post, an opportunity the Broncos do believe he'll consider.

    Kubiak has served for the last two years as a senior personnel adviser with the Broncos, and sources say the team has nothing but respect for the job Kubiak has done for the organization.

    They understand this development and believe this is something Kubiak will ponder.

    I hope it's here. Kubiak has a history of doing a stand-up job with limited resources. The last full-time gig Kubiak had as OC in Baltimore, he got a career year out of Justin Forsett and Joe Flacco.

    Of course, for Kubiak to be OC, the Broncos would have to hire a strong HC that wouldn't be threatened by Kubiak's relationship with Elway. This basically would leave Harbaugh or Shanahan who have prior working relationships with Kubiak. Otherwise, he's going to be an OC somewhere else next year.

    He can do it here. Asst HC/OC.

    I hope he doesnt go anywhere. Too much change may not be a good thing with the overhaul thats coming.

    I don't know, I can't see it being here for some reason. It would be seen as a step down after he was HC. Plus, if we bring in a young, offensive minded HC like I'm hoping, the Kubiak scheme probably wouldn't mesh with that.

    No. Please no. We need young dynamic motivated coaching with cutting edge schemes and plays. Love me some Kubes but that ship has sailed, been repaired, sailed again, rusted out and should now sit in a harbor and used as a museum.
    I said the second Wade Phillips left that he was more valuable to our defense than Von Miller. As much as I love Von, I still stand by that statement. Elway’s worst mistake was letting Wade walk. His second? Hiring Vance Joseph.

    I am so tired of us trying to lean on the past. If he's our OC it just shows we can't move on. If JFE is going to install him as OC and leave the HC without a say on that, but not do that with Phillips then I don't know how else to respond other than to say what the ****.

    I keep hearing the terms "young" and "dynamic" thrown around. The most electric offense in the NFL right now is the New Orleans Saints, and Pete Carmichael is 47. Matt Nagy, age 40, left the Chiefs for the Bears. Eric Bieniemy, age 49, took over as Andy Reid's OC. I don't care about "young" or "dynamic," I just want good. Adam Gase was young and dynamic, but he's not coming back.

    Kubiak has a proven track record of running good offenses, and he did a phenomenal job when he was in Baltimore. The relationship with Elway (and holdover coaches/players in the locker room) makes it near impossible for him to stay here though, because it would undermine almost any coach.

    Agreed. Vance Joseph and Joe Woods were supposed to be young and dynamic too.

    On the Fan this morning, they said if Kubes would be the OC, Mike Shanahan would be the ideal HC, and they get along very well.

    IF reports are correct about Harbaugh leaving Baltimore I think we'll see a Harbaugh HC and Kubiak as OC here in Denver.

    I don't recall hearing that about either.

    This sounds like a Gruden-level disaster waiting to happen.

    Let's leave their legacies alone and go somewhere new.

    The reason I’ve felt this came about is because Elway and the Broncos didn’t want to lose Joe Woods. Woods is a rising star in NFL coaching circles, had success where ever he’s been and he coached the No Fly Zone the last two years. Denver doesn’t want to lose Woods.

    Shanahan won't have as hefty a price tag this time around, and might be an easier sell on the Bowlen Trust. Harbaugh is going to command around $6-7 million a year, something that the Bowlen estate might not want to pay. I don't expect this to be a huge factor, but it is something to consider.

    Why would Shanahan come at a discount? Gruden just got $10 million a year, and Shanahan has way more success than Gruden on his resume.
